Wow! Hard to believe that Easter has come and gone already and we are less than a month away from our Spring Carnival on May 16th from 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Please put that date on your calendar and make plans to join us for this free day of fun for the whole family. All the games and carnival fun is free and all the concession prices will be family friendly and food will be yummy!
I want to praise God for the amazing Easter Service at Concord, where we were so blessed to have 74 people in attendance at our Worship Service. We serve an awesome God who continues to bless us every Sunday morning. Our average attendance has risen up to around 40 each Sunday morning.
The past two weeks our morning messages have focused on the most important thing and that is to be a loving Church. We are supposed to Accept, Appreciate, and Affirm everyone that God sends our way. This past Sunday we looked at 5 signs of an Authentic Love for God! I feel God has led us to be a Church that everyone is invited to come as you are and allow God to make a difference in your life! Too many times we want to judge people because they are different than us and that is not what God wants for His Church. Hope to see you real soon at one of our morning services at 10:30 a.m. I believe you will enjoy our worship services and quickly feel you are part of our church family! Have a very blessed week!
Love you all,
I am going to leave the message points from "Let Go and Let God" posted here on the welcome page, as we all need to let God have His way in our lives on a daily basis. God poured out his blessings on the Church in Acts 2:41-47 and He wants to do the same for us today! The four steps we must take as believers to "Let Go and Let God" are the following:
1) Claim Our Power (Acts 1:8)
2) Accept Our Mission (Matthew 28:19)
3) Unite in Love (Matthew 22:37-40)
4) Focus on Our Purpose (Romans 8:28)
That same God that saved 3,000 souls on the Day of Pentecost is the same God we serve today! We must unite together as a Church and Impact the world around us for the glory of God! Start each morning by saying, "Lord, What would you have me to do?" When we have a T.G.I.F. day (Today God is First), we truly "Let Go and Let God"! Continue reading below to be part of the wonderful work God has been doing at Concord General Baptist Church.
Folks are truly excited about the growth and vision God has placed upon our hearts. We are excited about all the hard work that has gone into our Junior Church program and are blessed with several workers to help train up our children in the Lord. We are starting back up the Discipleship Training Bible Study on Sunday nights. We will be taking a close look at the Purpose of the Church. The Church enthusiasm has been great to see and I know God is going to further bless through this study.
I also want to send out a thanks to all the visitors we have had over the past few weeks. We would love to have you join us each Sunday, if God places upon your heart to attend our Church. I am so blessed to Pastor at such a wonderful little country Church. I continue to pray God's Will be done at Concord and the entire Bloomfield community, as we seek to grow His Kingdom one soul at a time.
Wednesday nights we continue the great time of fellowship in our weekly Bible study. We are continuing our study on "Discovering Our Spiritual Gifts". I invite you to join us on Wednesday nights at 7:00 p.m.
I want to invite those in the community who do not have a Church home to come and grow with us this 2014 year. I know God has great plans for Concord and we have been blessed to see God at work through our first three years as Pastor. We continue to pray that God's will be done at all times and He sends new families to worship with us each Sunday. I am a firm believer that with God all things are possible! Concord is a small country Church with a giving heart and a vision to grow God's kingdom.
Please continue to pray for the Church and our staff as we reach out to the community with the Gospel and love of Jesus Christ. Remember if you don't have a Church home, you have a family waiting for you to join us here at Concord General Baptist. I hope to see you at one of our services in the near future. Have a blessed week in the Lord!
